    I was looking around trying to find bulk bullets, and it seems like online stores are just as if not more expensive than sportsmans warehouse, but I've had trouble with sportsmans not having anything in stock. Where do you get yours?

    The jacketed bullets from Magnus look like Zero bullets to me; if so you might want to compare their prices with those of Powder Valley and Roze Distributing. I'm going to order some Zeros as I've heard good things about them and the price is very competitive (seem about the same as plated).

    Here ya go....

    A week old...this post: http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=416562

    Look for my contribution - there's a fistful of good places for cast bullets; Berry's Bullets direct from them or from Graf's www.grafs.com is a FAR BETTER DEAL than RAINIER gold plated bullets (according to PRICE) from Midwayusa, who'll take you on shipping charges:fire:.

    Search through the posts from the last couple weeks in the handloading forum. You'll find we've done this one to death lately, especially since some manufacturers and retailers of bullets seem to think they're running a GAS STATION.:cuss:

    Yes, we're being gouged. :eek:

    Price isn't that big of a deal, but I want something that won't lead up the barrel too bad in cast, and a decent plinking bullet in jacketed. I liked the Missouri site because they advertised specialized hardness for the application.

    Then try moly coated lead bullets. They have the low cost of lead, without the barrel leading issues. 2 suppliers I know of are...

    I have put about 3,000 rounds of Missouri Bullets down my CZ-9mm, CZ-40, and various .45's, ranging from low power target to mid-range loads.

    Not the first trace of leading, nada, zip, nothing. Missouri Bullet lists the Brinell rating, so you match the bullet to the intended useage. Very useful.

    Besides, the quality, price, packaging, and service from Missouri bullet has been outstanding; they are my preferred supplier.

    I have been looking around for a while now and Missouri bullets seem to be the best out there for the price...I am glad to hear from schmeky there there doesn't seem to be much issue with lead fouling...but even if there is lead fouling its nothing the proper cleaning products cant take care of.

    You can check out powder valley too. They sell zero and midstates cast. You might be able to find them a few bucks cheaper at other places but if you have to buy from two places that savings gets eaten up in shipping. My last order was 2k 223 and 1.5k 357's jacketed and cast. I don't know any place I could have bought all of that for the price I got it for.
